Catalan mayors support holding independence vote

Protesters carry Esteladas, Catalan separatist flags and Basque flags, during a rally in favour of a referendum on independence from Spain for the autonomous community of Catalonia, in the Basque city of Bilbao, Spain September 9, 2017.

Ms Hyslop said: "The decision over Catalonia's future direction is a matter for the people who live there, and the Catalan and Spanish Governments are perfectly entitled to take positions for and against independence".

But more than two-thirds of mayors catalans are already committed to open ir municipal premises for voting, convened on 1st of October by executive to independence of this region of north-east of Spain.

Madrid has pulled out all stops to prevent the Catalan referendum from going forward, including threatening to arrest mayors who facilitate the vote, ordering police to seize any item that could be used for the plebiscite and tightening control over the region's finances.

Spanish police on Saturday seized printing materials meant to support and promote the referendum near Barcelona. "That is why they try to maintain stability and calm down the economic market", Folch said.

The prosecutor general's office of Spain had on Wednesday ordered prosecutors in Catalonia to summon se mayors are willing to cooperate "in organizing elections illegal" to put m in review.

Hundreds of mayors from the Spanish region of Catalonia marched through the streets of Barcelona in an act of defiance to the central government's crackdown on the upcoming separatist referendum.

Catalonia's top court on Friday issued a warning to seven newspapers not to publish campaign notices for the referendum, a court spokesperson said.

Polls in July showed that 70 percent of Catalans want the chance to vote on their independence.

All of this is just adding to the determination among Catalonians to see a referendum take place, and the central government's hostility is likely pushing more people into the leave camp all the time.
